Samsung Gear Fit 2 and Gear IconX Bluetooth earbuds revealed [Photos]

The Gear Fit was truly ahead of its time when it was unveiled back in 2014. After two years of waiting, it seems like Samsung has finally built a viable successor in the form of the Gear Fit 2. New images are emerging from a source who seemingly has access to the device, along with something known as the Gear IconX, which is apparently the company’s new Bluetooth earbuds.

The Gear Fit 2 is expected to be significantly improved compared to its predecessor and will supposedly pack a more ergonomic design, which could mean that the display will be more curved to fit the shape of your wrists.

As for the Gear IconX, we’ve heard this name before in a Samsung trademark filing and it’s finally taking form. These are Bluetooth earbuds with no wires whatsoever, not even connecting each other. This is a double-edged sword really, as you’re pretty much in the dark if one of the earbuds is lost.

But that apart, the design and the fit appear to be pretty impressive. It is said that the earbuds will have touch-sensitive controls similar to the Gear Circle. To make this a more exciting proposition for the customers, it is being said that the Gear IconX will have 4GB of internal storage to let you save music locally.

Understandably, the source couldn’t gather launch or pricing related details, but we’ll keep our ears to the ground for more information on either accessory.

I had the OG Gear Fit; it was a decent device ahead of its time. I hope they address some of its shortcomings like poor software design, mediocre UX, and inaccurate step counting compared to other fitness bands. I currently have a Huawei watch that is excellent, but this would be a nice option to have in the back pocket for working out.

The Gear IconX sounds like Bragi’s The Dash.

The design actually looks better even though there isn’t that much of a change from the original Fit. If u look closely the display doesn’t protrude like the predecessor which is a good sign. However I still expect a watch band from Samsung that works similarly like Apple Watch or Google’s MODE band. Samsung’s bands are quick-release, but they look complicated and less durable too.

I was kinda hoping for a Gear Circle 2, with better battery life, high res audio and yeah, local storage for music. The level U just isn’t the same as the Circle. These icons are interesting, but not sure how they’ll look and work. The Gear fit 2 doesn’t look much better, I thought it would be thinner
